Prison inmates are VERY thirsty, and usually very charming. It's a nasty combination.

When I was 18, I went to visit a friend living in an all-male halfway house. There was only street parking, and the halfway house itself was just 2 houses next door to each other with a wrought iron fence around it. The moment I stepped out of my car, I could feel eyes on me. It was a nice day, most of the guys were outside on the deck or in the yard, and it was amazing how quiet it got. I wasn't even a particularly attractive woman. 50lbs overweight, total tomboy in baggy clothes, no makeup, etc.

I had about 5 men introduce themselves to me before I even got in the door to check in. I was being whistled at from windows and eyeballed up and down by nearly everyone. But again, they were charming. Not vulgar in their words. Shook my hand gently, opened doors, called me ma'am, etc. And that combined with my general 18 year old insecurities had me feeling mighty fine about myself. I enjoyed that attention so much. Enough so that a month later, I got knocked up by one of the guys that lived there. Our son is now 18 and he's never met his dad, who has been in and out of prison his whole life. Currently on parole.

So, yeah. That's one explanation anyway.

Because Bon Iver.

Because there's not enough testing going on, could it be safe to assume that the "dry cough/fever/ trouble breathing" symptoms aren't necessarily the most common, but just the ones we should be worried about? The ones most likely to lead to hospitalization (where most people get tested)? I've read so many stories of people thinking they didn't have it because they didn't have any of the primary symptoms, but then they get tested and are positive. Just wondering if the three "primary" symptoms are actually just the three most dangerous symptoms. Does that make sense?

You're grandfather used to be a civil rights attorney, fighting for the rights of others. I know this probably isn't true, but I sometimes like to entertain the idea that all this anti-gay stuff is a huge lie, and that all he secretly wanted to do was encourage equal rights for homosexuals. Because that's essentially what he did. WBC has done more FOR LGBTQ rights than any other group I can think of.

Smallest animal was a field mouse that an owners cat dragged in the house.

That's so wholesome to me.
